Education Materials for Residents

Use the resources on this page to educate residents on saving energy. For residents that pay all or some of their utility bills, these resources will help them reduce their costs. If the housing authority pays all of the utility bills, educating residents will benefit everyone by improving resident comfort, lowering the housing authority?s bills, and helping the environment.
